How to get to the Glen site
To access the underground parking lot, follow the roadway that passes directly in front of the hospital entrances until you reach the STOP sign at the end of this road. Turn left, then immediately turn left again and follow the ramp down to the underground parking lot. The display boards provide up-to-the-minute information on the number of available parking spaces on each parking level (P1-P4).
Accessible via Decarie Blvd., the main parking lot is located below the main plaza at the Glen site

Passes are only valid for underground parking.
There are two exterior parking lots that are meant for quick visits to the hospital.
One is located directly across from the main entrance to the hospital. The second is located past the Cedars Cancer Centre at the entrance to the Research Institute. Payment can be made at the exit of the parking by credit card, at any one of the blue automated payment machines, or at the MUHC Parking Customer Service offices located on the RC level of the Glen.
Passes are not valid for the exterior parking.
Visitors may also drop off/pick up at the hospital main entrances or at the Emergency Department (for patients coming to the ED). Vehicles must then either park in the parking lot or leave the premises. All entrances, exits and roads must be free of vehicles for safety and security reasons.
